Life in Books Meme

Here's a really old draft I've discovered while deleting spam comments. (Actually, I was turning off comments from an old post that seems to be attracting them like maggots to a dead body.) I really need to not start blog posts and not finish them right away. I'm too forgetful to keep drafts. And I think I've kept this one sitting around because I was having a hard time coming up with answers. So, I've decided to post it undone, so folks who haven't seen this can give it a try. And maybe one of these days, I'll get around to trying it, too.

How I found this meme is a bit involved. I saw a tweet about it from AAKnopf that led me to a blog called Reactions to Reading where I saw:
A fun meme doing the rounds that I first spotted at Petrona is
Using only books you have read this year (2009), cleverly answer these questions. Try not to repeat a book title.
Now, I haven't read nearly enough books this year to do this, so I'm doing it for the decade so far, 2000-2013. And I have to add, I wish I'd come up with this idea. It's very cool.
